Ward councillors don’t have a clue
ON LOOKING at the bigger and better pictures of municipal councillors, the system and ward councillors seemingly are being dumped by political parties on residents. They are forced to accept the councillors and some don’t have a clue of their duties, their obligations and how the budget works for their wards.
My suggestion is, which might be unrealistic but should be the correct way as to why should taxpayers be dominated by political parties, why not let each residential area have public meetings and appoint their own councillors, whom they know trust and will deliver the goods (services)?
If we have independent candidates who will fight for the best for their constituency which will benefit residents, we are going to be much better off than the many “not so good” councillors, 49 out of 263 councils are failures.
We need to review what is happening in the wards and get a new system in place.
